Twitter allows account advocating murder of Trump, Pence

Twitter double standardAs of this writing, Twitter is allowing an account that appears dedicated to the murder of President Trump and Vice President Pence.  The account, which can be seen here, at least for now, features what looks to be a doctored photo of Trump laying on the ground with a bullet hole in his head.

A post at the Gateway Pundit noted:

Twitter keeps making announcements regarding new policies and standards to make Twitter a better and safer online environment yet when it comes to accounts calling for the assassination of President Trump and Vice President Pence, Twitter allows the accounts to stand for over one week and counting.

Amazing how that works, isn’t it?

Kristinn Taylor said the Secret Service has been made aware of the account and is investigating.
